Prior to exercising chakra breathing methods the first point I educate is to bring awareness to the chakras. This is done by focusing ones attention on a chakra and simply seeing any kind of feelings in the location of the power center.
This may include refined sensory understandings and sensations of warmth or prickling. By simply noticing what sensations are already there, in the area of the chakra, on is bringing the mind right into connection with the body. By doing this one can begin to develop the ability to perceive subtle energy and prana.
After one gets a feeling of bring interest and recognition to the power centers we can start with some simple breathing techniques to energize the chakras. The first breathing method is what I call the ‘Straight and also Guide Technique’ In this pranayama the in-breath is routed to among the chakras.
When we guide the in-breath to a chakra it comes to be the energetic support that permits us to revitalize the body and concentrate the mind. The ‘Direct and also Overview Technique’ is an extremely basic and also simple practice that aids to develop concentration while paving the way to much deeper states of meditation.
The Direct and Overview Method.
Bring understanding to any kind of single chakra
Breathe in as well as route as well as guide the power of the in-breath to the chakra
Exhale as well as enable understanding to clear up right into the chakra
The Straight and also Overview technique can be done for any of the chakras yet it must be practiced on one chakra at once. With the inhalation focus on the chakra with pin-pointed interest and straight and overview the power of the breath to the chakra.
On exhalation allow your recognition to work out deeply and also completely into any kind of experiences that are present in the chakra. This may consist of sensations of warmth, tingling or subtle vibrations.
Straight Chakra Breathing
This method targets at relocating power through and in between the chakras. A fundamental technique for the third chakra is to take in through the navel as well as purposely route the prana and also understanding to the point on the spine reverse of the navel.

Between the breathing and also exhalation, the breath can be retained while recognition is focused on the third chakra at the spinal column. On the exhalation feel the prana relocation from the point on the spine to the navel, as the exhalation proceeds continue by exhaling out of the navel.
Straight Chakra Breathing for the Navel
Take in with the navel while guiding the prana to the point opposite the navel on the spine.
After the breathing hold the interest as well as prana at the factor on the spine.
Exhale as well as feel the prana move forward from the point on the spine to the navel.
The previous workout might be done for all the chakras other than the root and also crown chakras. Because the origin chakra is located at the perineum, it is not feasible to guide the prana from front to back with the inhalation similarly that we can for each and every of the other chakras.
However, we can do a comparable strategy by relocating the prana from the perineum, to the coccyx at the pointer of the spinal column. This motion of energy upwards is very typical in advanced chakra breathing techniques as well as is covered in terrific detail in my book Chakra-Jnana Yoga. In the meantime lets take another look at the Straight Chakra Breathing Technique for the heart chakra.
Horizontal Chakra Breathing for the Heart
Take in through the facility of the chest while assisting the power of the breath to the opposite point on the back.
After the inhalation hold the focus and prana at the heart chakra point on the spine.
Exhale and really feel the power progress from the point on the spinal column and also into the center of the chest. Notification the sensation of the heart chakra opening.
